Country Farmhouse Retreat in Central Connecticut

These Connecticut clients wanted a very Old World English Country Bedroom for their Country Retreat Farmhouse in central Connecticut.

Having to stay in the flavor of this charming Clapboard / Stone Country Estate with stone fireplaces in almost every room, I was certain from the moment I saw a photo of the exterior of the home the design direction that I would take.The project entailed designing /decorating the 2 guest bedrooms in the upstairs "addition ".

As I always do, I gave the clients 2 design presentation options, but it wasn't until I came up with what you see here that they made a decision.
It was the polished English Country Chintz...they just loved the lilacs in the pattern...and were delighted to use that beautiful mauve / lilac color palett.

The English Mahogany 4 Poster Bed is an Antique circa1875 American, that I found in NYC at auction. It had a fine hand-rubbed finish and it is exquisitely carved. Being grandparents, they fell in love with my idea of using a child's chair !

Bed Pillows and Throw Pillows are pure Silk Taffetta Strie. Please note the Fortuni-Pleated ruffled edge bedpillows...

In the right corner is an 18th Century Cheval Mirror with finely carved ball 'n claw feet.

Timeless in age, Classic by style....

Room Designs that ALWAYS endure!
